In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has below average velo, has less armside movement than typical and has some added backspin. His curve has below average velo, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2022) results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has primarily 12-6 movement.
